Will I ever be successful??

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Wow! Am I ever disappointed in myself! I am close to 230 pounds the 2012-2013 school year being beyond stressful. Then summer came and I ended up having to take care of a 3 month old all summer while his mother was in the hospital for almost the entire summer. So I ate what was convenient and didn't care. This school year has been less stressful, but somehow I still haven't figured out how to quit eating junk, sweet, etc. foods.

So I was trying to get back on track by restarting with the 21 Day Fix by BeachBody. It did okay for about a week, but doing specific food counting was stressing me out more, as well as getting up for their workouts each morning. 30 minutes isn't alot to ask, but everyday...ahh...it's alot to commit to right away. So I burned myself out. Then I decided I wanted to do a combination of just counting calories and varying workouts. Anyway, I was diagnosed with tenosynovitis in my wrist and was put on predizone. That steroid is making me so hungry. That medicine then made my immune system non-existant and I now have an upper respirtory infection and haven't had a good night's sleep in 3 days. I can't workout because of the constant coughing and no energy.

I am so frustrated...I start and then bam...something happens. I am hoping that I can get restarted this weekend. I have an appointment with my personal trainer on Saturday. Hopefully everything will be better enough to go. I don't even know how I got so far off course. I just had to order bigger jeans because I don't have any that fit and I have been wearing nice yoga pants to work because my dress pants don't fit. I just feel gross and frustrated. GRRRR....

My acupuncturist and reiki lady is coming Friday night, so hopefully between her and the meds everything will get back to normal soon!

    Take each day minute by minute, step by step, and don't look back. Remember this is your journey of a lifetime. emoticon

    It really, really helped me to commit to "Just 10 Minutes" of exercise a day. Anyone, even I, can find TEN minutes. And of course once I started my 10 minutes, I would frequently do more. But no matter what "Just 10 Minutes"! Maybe it would help you?
    Good luck!

    emoticon I hate that feeling of having to start over. But try to think of it not as starting over, but as starting again. Each time we have more knowledge and experience. It will pay off. Keep up the hard work.
